APA Annual Convention & Trade Show

APA’s premier event of the year – this is your chance to catch up with friends, network with colleagues, preview the newest products and services from our exhibitors, and participate in first-class continuing education programs.

138th Annual Convention & Trade Show | June 9-12, 2019


Look! Up in the Sky! It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's the 2019 APA Annual Convention & Trade Show!


We all know being a HERO is part of your day job, so this year we thought we’d celebrate your super powers and abilities! We’re calling all heroes to report to Headquarters (a.k.a. Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort) for the 2019 APA Annual Convention and Trade Show, June 9 – 12.

ard-working. Essential. Relevant. Outstanding. Empathetic. Servant-minded


We’re excited to have our “greatness guru” back as this year’s keynote speaker. Don Yaeger will be back to inspire and challenge us with his message. If you don’t know Don – he is an award-winning keynote speaker, business leadership coach, eleven-time New York Times best-selling author, longtime Associate Editor for Sports Illustrated, and one of our favorite people!

Now let’s talk about the Bash. We all know that where you find heroes you also find villains…which one will you be? You have the option of saving the day or creating a little chaos!

Will you be saying “Up, up and away!” or “Have you ever danced with devil in the pale moonlight?”


…Just kidding - Mwahahahaha (that’s an evil laugh by the way)

Note: Our thoughts naturally go to the comics and Disney for our heroes and villains but don’t be afraid to think outside the box. You’ve set the bar high the past couple of years when it comes to embracing our convention themes and we can’t wait to see you in Destin!

This year's convention activities will take place at the Baytowne Conference Center which is adjacent to the Grand Sandestin.  APA has secured reduced room rates on a variety of different rooming options at Sandestin - both beachside and bayside. More information including rates and a link for room reservations may be found here.  The cut-off date for room reservations is Friday, May 10, 2019, after which rooms will be sold on a space-available basis.  The reduced rates are available three days prior and three days post event on a space-available basis.

So now the only question is ARE YOU GOING TO ANSWER THE CALL?
